Security Council: Palestine full member, Algeria's new battle

 ALGIERS - After incessant efforts and profound diplomatic work on all international, continental or regional scenes, it is as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council that Algeria will once again have on Monday the heavy responsibility to raise the voice of the Palestinian people loudly during discussions for Palestine's accession as a full member of the UN.

After these efforts recognized by the overwhelming majority of countries in favor of the adoption of the resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, on March 24, Algeria, tirelessly, engages in a new battle diplomatic.

Indeed, the fifteen members of the Security Council will hold closed consultations on Monday followed by a public session, to discuss the request from the State of Palestine transmitted by the Secretary General of the United Nations to the Security Council on 3 April, for a new examination of its application for membership submitted to the UN on September 23, 2011.

Without predicting the results of these discussions, the agreement or not of Palestine's full membership in the UN is already a success in the sense that it puts the Palestinian question at the center of international debates, an essential condition. to expose and then shatter an international injustice that has lasted for more than seventy years.

Aware of the importance of this accession, Algeria has continued for many years to try to mobilize all states loving freedom and justice so that Palestine achieves this international status.

Algiers, through the voice of its President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune, pushed with all its strength an amorphous international diplomacy which had relegated this sacred question not only for Arabs and Muslims, but for all those who are in love with human and humanist values ​​to mobilize for this important moment.

As a reminder, it was in Algiers, on November 1 and 2, 2022, during the summit of the Arab League, weakened at the time by the wave of normalization of the relations of some of its members with the Zionist entity, that this league was refocused on the Palestinian question.


During his speech at the 78th UN General Assembly held last September, President Tebboune reiterated his call for the holding of an Extraordinary General Assembly to grant Palestine full membership of the UN General Assembly. Less than six months later, the President of the Republic expressed his conviction that the State of Palestine would obtain permanent membership of the United Nations Organization.

“Algeria has been fighting tirelessly for four years for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state,” declared the President of the Republic during his periodic interview with representatives of the national media, adding: “we have brought together the Palestinian diaspora and mobilized the Arab League, and today there is real hope" for the State of Palestine to obtain permanent membership in the United Nations, stressing that some European countries were already calling for the establishment of a Palestinian state and said they were ready to recognize the Palestinian state.

“The battle that Algeria is currently waging indicates that it is high time for Palestine to become a full member of the United Nations, even if it is occupied,” maintained the President of the Republic, adding: “Palestine will be a member of the United Nations and we will not leave the battlefield until this goal is achieved." “This is the principle of Algeria, regardless of what others say, and thanks to our credibility, Palestine will obtain the status of permanent member, after becoming an observer member,” added the president of the

In a letter addressed to the Secretary-General on September 23, 2011, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas officially presented Palestine's application for membership in the UN. The letter contained a declaration in a formal instrument stating that "the State of Palestine is a peace-loving nation and accepts the obligations contained in the Charter of the United Nations and solemnly undertakes to fulfill them."

On September 5, 2012, the League of Arab States endorsed this effort as an alternative approach to the State of Palestine's candidacy for full UN membership in 2011.


On November 29, 2012, the General Assembly adopted resolution 67/19, in which it granted Palestine the status of non-member observer state of the United Nations.
